I did bake some sweet stuff this week, but i guess I want to put this special day on highlight.
At this day we who celebrate Ied ul Fitr all gather with our families and asked for each of forgiveness for our mistakes in this year. and eat. obviously. every Ied ul Fitr I eat a lot. like, a lot. I just keep on eating and talking to my family.
I'm telling you there were a lot of great food there! it's full of coconut gravy and sambal, all things that make you love indonesian food. my Uncle were like, " Why do you take pics of the food and not us?" Oopps. Sorry Unca!
first thing i ate was Somay. it's lot like chinese shu mai, but we eat it with our special peanut sauce.
it's so good i ate 3 bowl of them. blurp.
Next is the super-ied-ul-Fitr food, the most famous of all, Ketupat!!
ketupat is actually steam rice shaped into the shape of diamond. (wajik, tupat) indonesian reader, please correct me if i make a mistake explaning our glorious food.
This is sambal goreng ati. oh i don't know how to explain it in english. let's just say it's veeery good.
this one is Semur. semur is chicken, tofu, and potato bathed in sweet soy sauce broth. it's well known as javanese traditional dish.
This is Duck in green chili sauce. OH MY, the HEAT. my lips, throat and tounge wee basicly burning. i had to chuck 3 glass of cold water to calm myself down. but sooo worth it!
this is the rice. if you don't feel like eating ketupat, you can always eat rice, my aunt wrapped them in banana leaves to make it pretty.
oh i'm so full! aren't you?
Hope you enjoy the pictures!
love, Ardna and Ardna's Grandpa
